Director Christopher Nolan has officially put an end to our nerdy loin punishments by announcing that Tom Hardy will play the villain Bane in the third and presumably final Nolan-directed Batman installment, The Dark Knight Rises. And that is all the news there is involving this film today… tee hee… oh who am I kidding? ANNE HATHAWAY IS CATWOMAN!!!

Take it away, Empire Online…
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story,” said director Christopher Nolan in a press release.
“I am delighted to be working with Tom again and excited to watch him bring to life our new interpretation of one of Batman’s most formidable enemies.”
Nolan didn’t divulge any plot details, but if he’s as brilliant as me it will involve Bane and Christian Bale’s Batman doing a lot of high-fiving as Hathaway pillow fights with Harley Quinn, played by just about any living female with a pulse. And I’m sure the nerd brigade is gonna come crash down the gates around my heart and tell me that Anne is a terrible choice, but blah blah blah, I love you Chris Nolan.
